jason + elijah {vinegar + oil}

This week is “LA week” on the studio3z blog.  First up….

I constantly keep a mental list of shoots that I would like to do, and it probably changes daily.  One thing that has been on the list for a while is a night shoot.  I wanted a good challenge-just my camera + good lenses, no flash, and only using available light when found (because the whole shoot was new territory).  That is exactly what we did for this, minus 2 photos taken inside Elijah’s house.

Meet Jason and Elijah of {vinegar + oil}.  They are DJ’s, and pretty rad ones at that.


I feel like I need to apologize ahead of time for their hotness…It’s not their fault.  They really can’t help it.


*me loves*





One of Brett’s favorites.

my favorite, which will soon grace a wall in our home.

Liz - So…. is it just me or does Elijah look exactly like Elijah Wood? And if it really is him, are you totally pretending that you didn’t just have a photo shoot with a famous guy? Also… you really did an awesome job… lighting is perfect. It takes great guys to be willing to model for you like that! :) I should work in some more exercises for myself like this one! Thanks for the inspiration. :)

shannon selim - so i guess these were kind of worth the week long wait of no blogging… i almost went through withdrawal!!! hehe.

amazing work, i think you’ve just entered into a new category of awesomeness, if that was possible!

i have to admit i was a bit shocked when i saw the subject matter… but that just goes to show the shallowness of our general brush with celebrity! don’t worry… i got over it! even still beautiful work… beautiful men. :)
